When ADOPTING A FRIEND from Lakota Animal Care you'll be giving a home to a pet from the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. The Lakota Animal Caregivers work with tribal members who no longer wish to keep their pets, these animals are surrendered to Lakota Animal Care and fostered in homes throughout the country until a permanent placement is made.

About Our Rescue Group:

WHO WE ARE at Lakota Lakota Animal Care: A community-based effort to provide basic animal health care for dogs, cats and horses on the Pine Ridge Reservation. Tribal members from our communities are trained as Lakota Animal Care Givers to help improve the wellbeing of all our community members, of all our relations. We work in teams of two and operate out of a minivan equipped as our mobile unit which we use to get around to provide mange treatment, vaccinations, flea and tick treatments, basic wound care, deworming, and, when needed and possible, emergency transport to the nearest veterinarian. Pets available for adoption on this site were surrendered to Lakota Animal Care and are looking for a new forever home.

Come Meet our Pets:

We do adoption events about once a month at Petco in Rapid City. You can email for questions about our current pets available for adoption, or info about our upcoming adoption events.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
